Canadian Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CCUWiP)

The annual CCUWiP is a national conference for undergraduate students studying physics or related majors. The CCUWiP’s goal is to encourage undergraduate women to pursue their physics education by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, gather information about graduate school and professions in physics, and to network with other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas.

Through a collaboration between the CAP and the APS, the CCUWiP (Canadian) conference and the CUWiP (American) conferences are held at the same time and share a keynote speaker selected by an organizing committee comprised of representatives from each of the conference sites. For more information about the US-based conferences, please visit the APS CUWiP website.
